Loyola University Maryland’s Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology tied for No. 78 in the nation in U.S. News & World Report’s 2024 rankings for Best Graduate Schools. Loyola’s two-year, full-time speech-language pathology program provides students with the professional skills necessary to become advocates for people with communication disorders.

“As the need for speech-language services continues to grow, we offer an unrivalled academic program coupled with unique hands-on clinical training through the Loyola Clinical Centers in Baltimore,” said Frank D. Golom, Ph.D., ’04, interim dean of Loyola College, the University’s school of arts and sciences. “The national ranking recognizes the strength of Loyola’s program.”

U.S. News & World Report’s rankings reflect peer assessments of academic quality as well as location, environment, cost after tuition and financial aid, and job placement.

Loyola offers an undergraduate bachelor of arts degree, as well as a master of science degree in speech-language pathology. Undergraduate students are introduced to the profession through foundational coursework—which lays the academic foundation and clinical exposure to prepare students to successfully pursue a graduate degree. Loyola's graduate program is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
